I have a 2021 JLURD with all of the electronics including the front camera. My bottom console has this mat:

What does the "D" stand for in JLURD?

Any update on the console difference? I just picked up my 2021 JLUR 6/2/21 and tried to move my OCD divider over from my 2018. No luck as I have the new console. Thought I was crazy until I found this thread. Is there a new version I can order?

We do not have a center console divider for the 2021 variant of the JL console. The center console tray will fit either version of the console. We are managing by specifying the divider fits only the 8.5" deep center console on 2021 models (not the new shallower one).

It is still a mystery as to which 2021 models get which console. Mopar parts gave it their best shot along with two local dealerships using the VIN numbers in the first post.

Let me know your VIN and I will add to the others to try and make sense of this.

Do you have a time frame on when the new version will be available that fits the new console?

I was leaning towards it being ones built after a certain date that have new vs old, that doesnt look like its the case. I have 2 Wrangler 4 door Rubicons on the lot that are both 2021's, both have the bigger console.

The one with a build date of May 2021 is a 2.0L VIN 1C4HJXFN1MW694020
The other with a build date Aug 2020 is a 2.0L VIN 1C4HJXFN8MW514323

If anyone with the smaller console wouldnt mind taking a picture of the front of it at an angle similar to this? I have like 10 Gladiators here, if the front looks different it would save me time of having to open up every one of them to see if it is different?
